We’ve had a couple of loud thunderstorms in the past week or so. Guess who is terrified of loud noises like thunder (and some neighbourhood construction noise that sounds like someone letting a full sheet of plywood just whump down flat on concrete)?
Oh dear. The only safe place in the house, apparently. There was nothing we could do to alleviate her anxiety. I did put a dog bed in the hall for her so she wasn’t lying on the bare floor.
I did some baking over the weekend. I had some bananas that were just right to make banana bread. I used that same recipe I talked about here and I weighed all the ingredients (at least the ones that had weight measurements). It’s all very precise. I baked the batter in 4 mini loaves and 38 minutes and they turned out really good. Judy and Mike stopped by Sunday morning for a visit and they didn’t spit it out, so I think it was okay. (There was some knitting show and tell, yarn trading and dog fondling …)
Friday night I mixed up more of that chocolate chip cookie dough and let it sit in the fridge until yesterday afternoon. Also when I mixed the dough I weighed all the ingredients that I could.
For the best results and even baking, I made sure each “ball” of dough was the same weight. This batch is the best yet. And I remembered to sprinkle a few grains of Kosher/sea salt on the cookies before baking. Sooooo good!
Those Noro socks are still loitering around the heel flap stage … oh, knitting, how I miss you!!
